Because this piece does not have an abstract, we have provided for your benefit the first 3 sentences of the full text.
Although the major tenets and important branches of medical and psychiatric professionalism are contained in our hallowed source documents—the Hippocratic Oath, the Oath of Maimonides, and the Declaration of Geneva Physician’s Oath—ongoing evolution in the professions and in society demands that we constantly review, refine, and update our thinking about these values and practices.
Accordingly, the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education has included professionalism as one of the 6 “core competencies” of medical education. Among the attitudes, knowledge, and skills comprising this domain are requirements that physicians adhere to a number of historically well-understood ethical principles, including attention to increasing quality of care, access to care, scientific knowledge, and practicing competently within one’s scope of practice.
